What makes this photo special? That night, Del Insko became the first driver to win both ends of the Daily Double at Fairmount Park at the ripe old age of 17. A crowd of 3,845 were in attendance to see the historic event. While the Illinois track is still hanging on as a thoroughbred only track, it raced standardbreds through 1999.
